February 24th 2008 : Southwest Of Key West, Florida

Southwest Of Key West Florida Spinning Object Shoots Off At High Speed

Date: February 24, 2008
Time: 9:30 p.m.

HBCC UFO Research Note: I telephoned the witness and we had a good chat over the sighting, from what I was told this was certainly a unusual event.

This sighting lasted only a number of seconds but it was fascinating to witness.

I was on a starboard balcony of a cruise ship (details on request). The ship was heading due west, west by southwest of Key West Fla. The time was approx. 9:30PM EST and the sky was mostly clear, with stars shining brightly. I was looking at the northern stars when I noticed one that appeared somewhat larger than the rest, and with a colour slightly different than the others. My best description of it would be to say it was "creamy" in colour. It also stood out as it appeared to be much closer to the earth than the others. There was some high cloud obscuring portions of the sky but this object appeared to be at a lower altitude than the cloud layer.

Suddenly this object spun in a rapid pinwheel fashion for about 6 revolutions and then shot north-westward and disappeared. With each revolution, the circumference of the pinwheel circles expanded. I am not positive but, upon reflection, the object spun in a clock-wise fashion.

My description of this event does not do justice to the actual sighting. It was quite dramatic and unexplainable. If anyone else has seen anything similar or has an explanation for this phenomenon, I would be very interested in hearing about it. Yours truly.

Thank you to the witness for an excellent report and also for the great chat on the phone.
